Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>


Nice area with routes mostly bolted or rebolted in 2002.

Probably some of the most inland of the routes at Tonsai.

This wall is next to another wall called Wild Kingdom - it is actually just the left side of the wall, while Wild Kingdom is the right side.

The Nest has about 7 routes down low, and then 4 or 5 other routes up high that are second pitches.

Grades run from French 6a to about 7a, so roughly speaking these routes are mostly middle 5.10 to hard 5.11.

Getting There 

Walk to the end of the beach and turn inland on the path near the bar. Walk up the trail and just before it bends back to the right, there is a little trail into the woods leading to the wall.

Banana Hammock 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b  Asia : Thailand : ... : The Nest
Second route from the far right side of the Nest. Banana Hammock pulls up onto a bulge, and then you follow a 1 foot deep drippy colonette thing up, with the bolts on the left. There was a removable bolt stuck in a hole on this route in 2/07, it looked pretty fixed, probably still there. Pull over another bulge, then climb easy but slick stalactites for an overhanging move to the anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
